1. Volunteer to help with International Teaching Assistant Program
The Office of International Education is seeking student volunteers to help with the International Teaching Assistant Program from Monday, Aug. 13, to Friday, Aug. 17.
For more information contact Jean Czaja at 8-0721 by Wednesday, Aug. 8.
The International TA Program helps prepare new international teaching assistants for their TA role at Marquette. This program, which is mandatory for all new international TAs, provides workshops designed to introduce and review the skills the international TAs need to interact with American undergraduate students. Topics include university culture, teacher/student roles, presentation skills, classroom management and culture shock.
Student volunteers are specifically needed to serve on a student panel to share their Marquette experiences and help as conversation facilitators on a cultural trip to Lake Michigan and Alterra at the Lake.
2. Help welcome students on Arrival Day
Arrival Day, Aug. 22, is quickly approaching and the Office of Residence Life invites the campus community to be a part of the opening day experience for our new students and help them feel welcome. Helpers are needed to serve as greeters and check-in staff, to hand out refreshments, and to help students move their belongings into their rooms. There is no set time commitment, so helpers can volunteer for as little or as long as they would like.
For more information, contact the Office of Residence Life by Aug. 15 at 8-7208 or e-mail Richard Arcuri.
3. Transcript requests now available online
Current students can now request transcripts online from the Office of the Registrar effective today, Aug. 6. Students may log into CheckMarq and, under the “View My Grades” heading, click on the “Request My Official Transcript” link to order transcripts.
The Office of the Registrar will continue to accept paper requests for transcripts delivered in person or mailed to the office. Faxed transcript requests will no longer be accepted. The transcript fee is now $5 while the rush fee is $10. Payment, by credit card online, or cash or check in person or by mail, must accompany each request.
For more information, visit the Office of the Registrar’s Web site.
4. E-mail upgraded this month
IT Services is upgrading all eMarq e-mail (Exchange 2003) to Exchange 2007 this summer. IT Services will begin migrating students to Microsoft Exchange 2007 tomorrow, Aug. 7. Moves will be scheduled alphabetically by last name as they appear in the Global Address List. Check the project Web site for up-to-date information on the scheduling of your move.
You will be sent an e-mail from the Marquette postmaster the business day before your mailbox is moved (the “from” line will simply say “postmaster”). You should also note that after your mailbox move you will see a slightly different interface in Outlook Web Access. Please see the project site for additional information on supported clients and new features in Outlook 2007.

8. Marquette Interchange highlights for the week of Aug. 6
• The major closures for beam installation begin this weekend and will continue for the next three months. The closures required for this work will be more extensive than we have been accustomed to. Closures will last all weekend and will affect various portions of local streets (St. Paul Avenue) and various freeway sections including system-to-connector ramps. These beam lifts are so critical to the on-time completion of the project that they will take priority over all other events, including festivals, Brewer games, Packer games and Al’s Run. Proper sequencing of these lifts is required, meaning that any setback will delay the remaining lifts. In most cases any time lost cannot be made up. Set-up will begin on Friday evenings and the actual lifts will take place during the following daylight hours.
• Tory Hill/ Clybourn is partially open with a single westbound lane only in the eastbound roadway from 10th to 16th Street. Eastbound is still closed at 16th Street.
• St Paul Avenue from 5th to 13th Street will be closed in both directions from 9 a.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday for the next two weekends.
• Wisconsin Avenue is restricted to a single eastbound lane between 19th and 20th streets. Westbound Wisconsin Avenue traffic between 4th and 10th streets has temporarily moved into the eastbound roadway.
